The Stellas award hospitality properties and service providers that deliver “quality service and innovation” to meeting and events professionals. The Kimpton Sylvan Hotel was commended for its commitment to maintaining an eco-friendly environment, including its 5,000-square-foot, on-site oxygen-cleansing gardens as well as the use of resource-efficient bulbs, faucets and shower heads in the 217 guest rooms.
